This year's event will be held on April 18th in Shelf between Halifax and Bradford. The 'special theme' will be Italian Bikes but this will not mean that anything else won't be welcome! There is also a short ride around midday but it's not compulsory - and it depends on the weather too!

More details will be posted nearer the day but this notification will help you plan a bit more long term. The show is growing every year so let's see some Retrobike Beauties there this year!

If you have any retro jerseys and memorabilia these can be displayed (and worn!) as well.

Here's a piccy from '09 showing a small selection of the display.

looks interesting. is it a concours type show, or are clunkers displayed too? Is it full of quality bikes, or are there everyday bikes also? what about kids bikes? I'd love to reminisce in a sea of 60/70's kids bikes. Any trade stands/bike jumble there? Trying to get a feel for the event.
questions, questions, questions

It's basically a classic racing bike display only, not necessarily concours but clean and tidy at least! Some bikes are fully restored and probably hardly ever see a bit of tarmac but lots are loved and ridden regularily.

No 'official' jumble but there is always an auction of parts donated by visitors with the proceeds going to the Dave Rayner Fund. In practice the better stuff tends to get sold before the auction if someone gives a good offer. The auction prices tend not to be to high though.

A couple of more shots from last year.

Only a month to go now, I've earmarked the bikes I'm taking.

As well as the Italian theme, there's also a 'mini-theme' on Bradford built bikes so if you have one, bring it along. I don't have an Italian but I have 2 of these.
